Michell Post’s Story: Redefining the Mature Woman

I am so excited about this guest post. Michelle is a flight attendant and an author. She has an inspiring story for anyone who wants to fly as a second career. Are you too old? No Way! FUTURE GODDESS OF THE SKY For those of us over 40 or even 50, we have a whole new world open to us. You can be a goddess in the sky! We have raised our kids…some of us are single. What we have now that we did not have in our ‘youth’ is total and complete freedom! For me…I was a single parent for over 20 years. I had to balance a job, well several jobs, as well...

From Sky Queen to ER Angel

Posted by on 2:54 pm in Uncategorized | 1 comment

This essay, written by Lorena Birt, is bittersweet and so beautiful. Lorena was my roommate at Continental training and she is one of the best FAs I know. Before Continental, she had a long career as an international FA with Northwest. She hung up her wings to become a nurse a few years ago. So many aspiring flight attendants are chasing a dream as a second career. Lorena did it the other way. She left the sky to pursue a second dream career as an ER nurse. Our lives are made up of so many chapters and each one is valuable. No matter what...

Abbie Unger’s Mornings Australia TV Interview

A few weeks ago, I was in a fitting room at Talbots, trying on white jeans. It was my birthday and my mom and I had just gotten our nails done and we were spending the rest of our free time shopping. The jeans were perfect. After I put my own clothes back on, I checked my phone for new notifications and I saw I had received a tweet from a morning show in Australia. They had read the Huffington Post article I was interviewed for and they wanted to interview me! Fast forward 5 days and that is exactly what happened. I was interview on Mornings...

Hello Dreamers and Flyers,                                                                                                           Below you find a guest post from a friend of mine, Colleen. She travels all around the country with her special needs daughter visiting doctors and searching for hope.

Colleen gives some good insight into how we as flight attendants can help. On the...

Budgeting Tips for New Flight Attendants

Posted by on 1:38 pm in Blog | 0 comments

Hi Dreamers,  I am asked all the time about money. “How can anyone live on a new hire salary?”  I’m going to be honest and tell you it is hard. Other than that I don’t have a great answer, but my friend, Melissa, has a great answer and she was kind enough to guest post on the blog. In 2010, Melissa made a commitment to get better with the family finances. At that time, she and her husband were living paycheck to paycheck, had no money in savings and no financial goals. By September of 2013, they had paid off over...
